There are a growing number of economically successful systems in the world, but commercial aquaponics is in its infancy in South Africa. After attending courses by internationally renowned experts in Stellenbosch, and studying the principles of aquaponics extensively, Colin Bremner of Kleinskuur Aquaponics near Pretoria, has designed a uniquely South African model following the motto of “keep it simple”.
The story goes on…
After proving the productivity and the concept of a large commercial system in the R&D (research and development) system at Kleinskuur, the Kleinskuur designs for Community and Commercial systems were developed. Systems are being built in various places in Africa, such as Namibia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Mauritius.
A design for a home system is the latest development.
